Watermelon (Green on the Outside, Red on the Inside) Dems To Double Down On Climate Lie

A Commentary by J. D. Longstreet

(EDITOR’S NOTE: Since J.D. is discussing enviro-nuts, it’s a good opportunity to recall our discussion during this edition of The Teri O’Brien Show of the despicable founder of Earth Day, Ira Einhorn. Suffice it to say that, as one of the participants in the chat room noted during that program, he obviously believed that girlfriends are recyclable.)

Democrats in the US Senate are concerned, it seems, that not enough Americans are buying into the hoax of Global Warming/Climate Change.  So they propose doing what Democrats always do when the public refuses to accept their lies … ram it down our throats.

Some democrats in the Senate intend to bring pressure to bear on the broadcast and cable news networks to be more aggressive in spreading the Climate Change propaganda to their viewers.

We learned the following from the National Journal recently in an article entitled:  “Democrats Plan to Pressure TV Networks Into Covering Climate Change:”

“Sens. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., and Brian Schatz, D-Hawaii, are gathering colleagues’ signatures on a letter to the networks asserting that they’re ignoring global warming.”

Senator Sanders is quoted as saying:

“Sunday news shows are obviously important because they talk to millions of people, but they go beyond that by helping to define what the establishment considers to be important and what is often discussed during the rest of the week …

Sanders made mention of their latest move in “a press conference with most other members of Senate Democrats’ new, 19-member Climate Action Task Force.”

Somehow, the democrats seemed to have entirely missed how the public has decided — after being bombarded with Global Warming and Climate Change propaganda for many decades now — that it is, in fact, a lie, a hoax, with almost as much value as a polished cow pie.

Most Americans have figured out that the environmental movement, the greens (or Greenies), is/are sort of like a watermelon.  Like that delicious melon, the environmental movement is green on the outside, but red on the inside.

The last five years with a Marxist President has caused Americans to take a second, harder look at Marxism/Socialism.  Obamacare, the latest Marxist program to be foisted on the American people, has convinced even more people that Marxism/Socialism is a rotten philosophy and one that will destroy our country if not stopped in its tracks immediately.

It took a while but finally Americans have seen through the lies of the Left and now see Climate Change for the vicious lie that it is.

I came across a blog site recently that I think pretty much sums up why we oughtn’t to place any trust, at all,  in those who purvey the Global Warming/Climate Change lies and propaganda.

We lifted the following from the website at: http://www.ihatethemedia.com/earth-day-predictions-of-1970-the-reason-you-should-not-believe-earth-day-predictions-of-2009

“Here are some of the hilarious, spectacularly wrong predictions made on the occasion of Earth Day 1970:

“We have about five more years at the outside to do something.”
• Kenneth Watt, ecologist

“Civilization will end within 15 or 30 years unless immediate action is taken against problems facing mankind.”
• George Wald, Harvard Biologist

“We are in an environmental crisis which threatens the survival of this nation, and of the world as a suitable place of human habitation.”
• Barry Commoner, Washington University biologist

“Man must stop pollution and conserve his resources, not merely to enhance existence but to save the race from intolerable deterioration and possible extinction.”
• New York Times editorial, the day after the first Earth Day

“Population will inevitably and completely outstrip whatever small increases in food supplies we make. The death rate will increase until at least 100-200 million people per year will be starving to death during the next ten years.”
• Paul Ehrlich, Stanford University biologist

“By…[1975] some experts feel that food shortages will have escalated the present level of world hunger and starvation into famines of unbelievable proportions. Other experts, more optimistic, think the ultimate food-population collision will not occur until the decade of the 1980s.”
• Paul Ehrlich, Stanford University biologist

“It is already too late to avoid mass starvation.”
• Denis Hayes, chief organizer for Earth Day

“Demographers agree almost unanimously on the following grim timetable: by 1975 widespread famines will begin in India; these will spread by 1990 to include all of India, Pakistan, China and the Near East, Africa. By the year 2000, or conceivably sooner, South and Central America will exist under famine conditions….By the year 2000, thirty years from now, the entire world, with the exception of Western Europe, North America, and Australia, will be in famine.”
• Peter Gunter, professor, North Texas State University

“Scientists have solid experimental and theoretical evidence to support…the following predictions: In a decade, urban dwellers will have to wear gas masks to survive air pollution…by 1985 air pollution will have reduced the amount of sunlight reaching earth by one half….”
• Life Magazine, January 1970

“At the present rate of nitrogen buildup, it’s only a matter of time before light will be filtered out of the atmosphere and none of our land will be usable.”
• Kenneth Watt, Ecologist

Stanford’s Paul Ehrlich announces that the sky is falling.
“Air pollution…is certainly going to take hundreds of thousands of lives in the next few years alone.”
• Paul Ehrlich, Stanford University biologist

“We are prospecting for the very last of our resources and using up the nonrenewable things many times faster than we are finding new ones.”
• Martin Litton, Sierra Club director

“By the year 2000, if present trends continue, we will be using up crude oil at such a rate…that there won’t be any more crude oil. You’ll drive up to the pump and say, `Fill ‘er up, buddy,’ and he’ll say, `I am very sorry, there isn’t any.’”
• Kenneth Watt, Ecologist

“Dr. S. Dillon Ripley, secretary of the Smithsonian Institute, believes that in 25 years, somewhere between 75 and 80 percent of all the species of living animals will be extinct.”
• Sen. Gaylord Nelson

“The world has been chilling sharply for about twenty years. If present trends continue, the world will be about four degrees colder for the global mean temperature in 1990, but eleven degrees colder in the year 2000. This is about twice what it would take to put us into an ice age.”
• Kenneth Watt, Ecologist

It’s almost funny… ALMOST.  My ongoing concern is that so many bought into the lies and propaganda and, what’s worse, continue to do so today.  Thankfully, today the trend is to disbelieve much of the garbage as so much of it has proven false and contrived.  And yet, our President and his cohort in Congress continue to press for new programs, increased funding, and more and more regulations based on what I believe is the false science of Global Warming.

I couldn’t help but notice there was no mention of those “Senate suggested” broadcast reports on Global Warming being balanced.  It would seem the dems are of the mind that any report on Global Warming by the Mainstream Media would, naturally, reflect the philosophy and the narrative of the political Left.  I wonder why?  But that’s another story for another column.

Thank you for posting Longstreet’s commentaries, quoting from them, and forwarding them to friends and colleagues. JDL
